LIHEAP can be used for home heating costs, whether it’s heated with natural gas, electricity, propane, coal, fuel, oil or wood
The amount varies based on the number of people living there, their combined incomes, the heat source and other factors intended to ensure help goes to those most in need.
Both homeowners and renters can apply, however, individuals living in subsidized housing whose heat is included in their rent are not eligible for the program.
